“A fantastic villa in a great location in lovely village!”

My friends and I stayed in Villa Julia. We had a truly fabulously relaxing time with loads of swimming, casual wonders around the village and fabulous views! Idyllic holiday! I would recommend the villa to groups of friends and or family but only those NOT after nightlife. You have to make your own fun. But with the ping pong table, cards, books, the sea and the pool that isn't hard.

Would totally agree with all of this but we would hasten to add that within a short stroll there are excellent family-run restaurants with romantic tables by the sea and a variety of great Turkish cuisine including fresh local fish.

“Beautiful spot, but really overprized”
Reviewed 15 August 2013 for a stay in August 2013

Villa Julia is a beautiful house on a perfect location. The staff and people in the village were very kind and helpful. We had a very nice stay, but were frustrated by the price/quality ratio, because of the following defects:
1. There sewer produced a horrible smell around the house and in one of the rooms.
2. The kitchen was very outdated. The dishwasher did not work well, the toaster went on fire, the utensils were old and incomplete.
3. One of the airconditionings did not work and repairing took the rest of our holiday.
4. One morning the swimming pool was emtpy.
5. The sofas to sit on outside were old and dirty.
6. In the morning we had to clean the garbage that was washed on the beach.

If you charge a high price, you need to provide good quality.

The Villa is really unique and we have happy repeat guests. The prices per week are not expensive compared to other Villas situated directly on the sea, on the contrary, we have a quiet location with a sandy beach, private jetty, exceptional views, etc., etc., in an area of outstanding beauty.

With regard to individual comments:

1) We have a biological jet airation waste water processing system to avoid any pollution on land or in the sea, and we have never had comments like this before.
2) The dishwasher has since been serviced and a new pump installed. Toast must have burnt in the toaster.. it is still working and has not been replaced. The kitchen is quite adequate, but we are planning on upgrading it for 2014.
3) All 7 air-conditioning units in the house had an annual service earlier in the summer by the official service engineers. During, or just before this client's holiday, the fan unit in one started making a lot of noise so the engineers returned and ordered a new part but it took time to arrive and then they came and fitted it.
4) The swimming pool is a seawater pool that has filtered sea water circulating through it with no chemicals. The pool is emptied every few weeks to scrub it and this us usually done at the end of a rental. There had been a storm and a lot of sand, leaves, flower petals, etc., had blown into it. The maintenance man had come down in the night and decided to empty the pool as the quickest way to clean it properly and to cause minimum inconvenience to the guests. He did not give prior notice to the cleaner or the guests who were surprised to find it empty in the morning, but it was cleaned and refilled that same morning.
5) The 3 sofas outside are covered with blankets that are cleaned regularly. The sofas take a lot of use, particulary in the high season when children jump and bounce on them. They will be replaced again for summer 2014.
6) We are sorry if the guests were cleaning the beach, this is one of the first jobs that is supposed to be done by the cleaner on arrival early in the morning, it is very important to us..... it should be cleaned regularly and we take pride in the beach. The cleaner usually has high praise from our guests, but she was not feeling well that week and hence had not cleaned the beach as well as usual.

Our feedback is usually excellent and we have happy repeat guests. We believe that we offer excellent value for money for such a very special and unique place.
